Shanghai Residents Bang Pots Amid City's Covid-19 Lockdown

Shanghai residents banged on pots and made noise on the evening of April 28, as the city remained under a COVID-19-related lockdown.

A poster circulated to residents called for people to make noise at the time, asking for a “shout out to our home” and “banging on pots and pans to ask for supplies”.

“Residents are banging pots to show their displeasure. In 30 days, we only received 3 food parcels from the government,” France24 journalist Antoine Morel wrote in a Twitter post with this video.
